Oh boy! We heard rumblings about this, but now the actor himself, Ingo Rademacher (Jax) of General Hospital has tweeted that fans should expect to see a lot of less of him, in fact, not much at all in the coming weeks!

The talented leading man was on twitter this afternoon and tweeted the following: “Don’t expect to c me much on GH. once a week seems to the norm for me if that. I must have peed in the pool and was fresh out of chlorine 🙂 I’ll be on the air for the next week or 2 a bit. But after that a lot less. Sorry guys. I don’t know what to tell u.  It’s not my call.”

So with Becky Herbst back in at GH, and cast cutting measures needed at the top soap at ABC, the slashing had to come from somewhere, and we can only assume that Ingo is part of that.   Stay tuned, there is probably more to come over the folks that run the ship at GH!

What do you think about Ingo’s upcoming lack of airtime?

When will the “Powers that Be” realize that the fans keep the soap on air? I am tired of crazy storylines with characters who are disposable and have a built-in shelf-life. I want to see relationships, romance, and I want to see that with core characters, core families. Jax/Carly/Sonny/Brenda/Luke/Tracy/Steve/Elizabeth/Lucky/Nicholas/Robin/Patrick/Jason/Sam/Michael/Kristina/Alexis/Molly…you get the picture. It is frustrating to see “The Balkan” & his wife take up precious airtime better served with our core favorites. Lisa BORES me. Who’s her new dr.-friend, btw? Can’t even remember the character name…that’s how little impact THAT story line has made. PLEASE, GH, BACK TO THE BASICS!!!!

I feel bad for Ingo but I really can’t stand the character of Jax so no great loss for me!

I love Ingo, but I think his fate was sealed when they married Jax to Carly. His character hasn’t been the same since. I miss the old Jax.

I think Ingo’s great. He was the first to support Becky and it sucks his time is getting cut back.

I guess one of the problems and this might be just my perception is that he’s not as strong dramatically as a lot of the other guys. I mean I like him just fine but in terms of carrying a big emotional story he hasn’t whether thats because of ability or short sightedness from TPTB, I don’t know. I feel like pit him against JJ or Mo in a tearful monologue face off and Ingo would probably lose.

He is good at what they do have him do, which is swooning prince charming and he exudes a warmth, and there’s a strength to that, and I honestly think he does that better than anyone else on the show. Early in the Brenda return I felt more of connection between those two than between SnB. There is a charisma and charm that Ingo pulls off very, very well and I will be sad to see him less though I will say he’s been grossly misused, the CarJax relationship has been bland for years and they never used him well in that relationship as to playing what he’s good at.

Might’ve been wrong. Just watched scenes from 2/25, Ingo was great yelling at Sonny…my bad.

If it was budget, then they should just quit hiring newbies. It couldn’t have been because of Ingo calling out GH on the unjust firing of Becky, could it? I mean, they wouldn’t be that cruel. It would have been really nice to see Jax and Liz. It could’ve been an interesting dynamic, if tptb gave it a try.

I’m tired of seeing the same pampered pets on GH in the same repetitive stories.

We need more Jax-TV!

What I see on this show is a lot of newbies. Gh is really slapping these veteran in the face. What bring in the new and throw out the old. TPTB are repetitive in their stories they have manage to bring in newbies and than used them to prop others, for what? Why because they want to keep pretty. They are idiots, they don’t know what the audiences want. Screw you gh, one less viewer.

I think they should cut down maurice benard acting time he’s practically in every scene. cut his time about 60% and problem solved everybody gets fair airtime. I dont blame ingo for being pissed, they seem to throw away good actors that have been on the show for a long time to new people who nobody gives a damn about. until they hire better writers and give ingo his much deserved airtime i will stop watching. Long live Jax and Brenda!!!

thank you… they lost money when they hyped up Brenda coming back.. and it wasnt worth it… now its the sonny and Brenda show.. ratings are dropping and Frons is still acting like he is in love with sonny and marcel… and he plots the cutting /cancel of OLTL to hide his mistakes. please write his boss.. we want him out and Guza may go too… anne.x.Sweeney@disney.com they really have destroyed gh.. its hard to watch any more…

if they had not of spent so much money hyping up the return of Vanessa-there would be money.. And if she had not of come back there would be money… you cant tell me that Adrianne B. and the guy who plays theo is not getting more money then the actors who had been on GH for a while… its called GH is is trouble and all the other soaps have to suffer for it… the mistake was playing up brenda’s come back. People sign the petition to get rid of Frons… because i am going to be upset if OLTL is canceled . too many eggs went into one basket… whose fault is that and why should the fans suffer?

Elsewhere, will Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) be hot on Nina’s (Michelle Stafford) trail and find out that she has been complicit in Peter’s (Wes Ramsey) kidnapping?

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Julexis Goes To Therapy

On General Hospital, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) was able to convince Julian (William deVry) to attend therapy with her to help her better understand her issues with men and relationships, which all of have been tainted by the destructive relationship between her father Mikkos Cassadine and her mother.

When Julexis sits down for the session with Dr. Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom), things take a bad turn when Alexis starts explaining to Julian why he is there, while Julian feels it’s just an attack on him, and their past, especially when it comes up how he held a knife at her throat on the pier and tried to kill her. Julian tells Kevin that everything he did was to protect his family from his crazy sister, Olivia.

Julian is ready to storm out, but Kevin suggest they implement more structure to the session to make this work for everyone.  It’s clear Julian does want to help Alexis, and/or also come to understand something about himself and their relationship, and why it splintered.  When asked by Kevin why Julian felt encouraged to pursue Alexis when he first came to town; knowing he was a criminal and she was on the right-side-of-the-law, Julian with tears in his eyes says, “Redemption.”  Julian says he fell in love with Alexis, but also liked the idea of proving and becominga better man.  He then says that both of them were trying to break the cycle of violence from their pasts, and he wished they had both been able to do so – in a heavy-dose-of-reality moment for Julexis.

The session ends, and Julian and Alexis walk to the hospital elevator, and he agrees to go to more sessions with her, saying that they both have issues to address so they can move on with their lives.  Alexis thanks Julian and offers one day to repay this favor.

In these scenes, William deVry and Nancy Lee Grahn brought the heartfelt emotions and the internal conflict that has made Julexis a dynamic duo on GH.   Now with Julian seemingly moving on with Kim (Tamara Braun), and Alexis wanting a fresh start, will these joint therapy sessions enable them to do that  … or perhaps can they resolve the issues that have plagued them, and move on with each other, and grow from it?

So, do you think this is the true end of the road for Julexis?  What did you think of the performances of Will and Nancy?  Comment below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Chase and ‘Janelle’ Two Sides To Every Story?

On Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital, viewers were given more of the back-story between Chase (Josh Swickard) and Nelle (Chloe Lanier) told through a series of flashback from their disparate recollections.

At the PCPD, over the phone, Chase thanks his former police partner, Abby for sending the files he had on one … Janelle Benson.  As he peruses through the files and sees the image of Nelle contained within it, and a postcard from Florida, Chase flashes back to his interrogation room and meeting suspect ‘Janelle’, when he was working as an officer in Maine.  Nelle was being questioned in the drowning of her fiance’ Zack..  Chase asks why the upset ‘Janelle’ chose to vacation in Maine instead of Florida.  She says it was so Zack could put space between him and his disapproving family.  However, ‘Janelle’ does admit going kayaking was her idea.

Next, she cries that she had to make the decision to try to save Zack from drowning, but thought maybe she might die too, so she decided to save herself, and not go in after him, in what was an impossible situation to be in.  Abby questions ‘Janelle’ about Zack changing his will right before they headed off for their vacation.  ‘Janelle’ lets it firmly be known that it was all Zack’s idea to change his will.

Chase believes ‘Janelle’ is innocent, but Abby thinks Janelle is played the helpless victim card.  Chase decides to release Nelle.  Later, Chase remembers traveling to Florida, because Nelle was reportedly being harassed by Zack’s family.  When he got to Florida, he recalls staying in a motel, and was set to meet up with her at a diner.  However, ‘Janell’e surprised him while he was half-naked in a towel and the door of his room.  Next thing you know, things get hot and heavy as she seduces him.  Chase flashes to them hitting the sheets and being in the throes of passion, and promising to take care of everything for her.

Meanwhile, Nelle and Michael (Chad Duell) are talking at The Floating Rib.  Nelle admits to Michael that she has a past with Chase, and her fear of him trying to bring her down now that he is in Pot Charles.  She says that Chase would do anything to get ahead in his career.  Michael asks if Maine was truly the last time she saw Chase.  She says it wasn’t, and says he followed her to Florida.

Now, as there are two sides to every story, Nelle flashes to coming to visit Chase at his motel room; where he is only wearing a towel . In her version, she portrays Chase as the instigator.  She start to cry and tells Michael that in her gut she knew that something was off about Chase, but she felt like she was drowning inside and he was her lifeline. Nelle says Chase became obsessed with her.

Then while alone, Nelle remembers how she was able to get Chase to go out to the store and get her some water after their hot sexcapade.. Once she is all by herself, Nelle calles the police to report misconduct by an officer at the motel.  Meanwhile, Michael has headed over to the PCPD to confront Chase.

So, which version of the story of  Chase and ‘Janelle’ do you believe? It appears Nelle has done a number on Chase. What did you think of Chloe Lanier’s performance where she can go from portraying the victim in a situation, to an evil bitch, with ease?  What do you think of Josh Swickard as the PCPD’s main cop, now that Dominic Zamprogna (Dante) is on his way out of GH?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
